The Grammy’s bring out the music industry’s hottest and most popular acts for one eventful night. Every year the prestigious award ceremony felicitates the best musician for their work. It appears, the music industry wants out of Vegas, the venue for the 64th edition of the ceremony.
PageSix reports, Grammy weekend in Sin City is becoming increasingly difficult to pull off. An industry insider told the outlet, “People are stressed and frazzled running up and down the strip.” The source added, “there are multiple conferences going on, a big poker event and getting luxury cars for artists has been a disaster,”
The 64th annual Grammy Awards was originally supposed to air on Jan. 31 from the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. However, the Recording Academy was forced to reschedule. It was moved to MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas which had extra outside space needed for the coronavirus pandemic mandates.
The move has caused the action-packed weekend to descend into chaos as no one wants to attend. An insider, who is not attending the event, told the outlet that “no one wants to go to that gross ass town,” Even the outfits are upset to be there.
“Stylists are having meltdowns because there are no expert tailors like LA, and they have to lug couture gowns and tuxedos through smoky casinos that smell bad,”
Amid music people problems, artists are also having to scale back their entourages due to limited credentials this year. It seems there will be a serious shortage of big music label parties. Another source shared with PageSix, “The consensus is there’s not much going on and no one really wants to go to Vegas,”
Meanwhile, Trevor Noah is set to host the show on Sunday and stars such as Billie Eilish, BTS, Lil Nas X, Leon Bridges and Lady Gaga are slated to attend. Steven Tyler will host a Grammy watch party at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, where Miley Cyrus will perform. Stay tuned to Thirsty for future updates.
